Easily a lovable experience The room (129) was excellent! Cleaner than any I’ve stated

the bathroom and shower was outstanding That is actually the feature I enjoy most at a hotel stay and compared to the Argosy, none hold up Dual head shower, easy to operate, excellent lighting, plenty of room the only reason I didn’t rate a 5 was one particular desk person was not friendly or engaging There was no microwave or blow dryer but there was plenty of outlets for electronics!! Best room experience I’ve had in my travels and dozens of hotels!!!

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay This website will compare hundreds of booking web sites and normally will have rates much cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This hotel is one of the best in the area

I have been staying here for a very long time If you stay for a few nights you definitely won’t regret itThe Argosy is hands down my favorite Casino in Kansas City! The gaming floor is fantastic, but the hotel rooms, well they are just amazing! If you haven’t stayed here before I highly recommend doing so! You won’t be disappointed, the showers alone will have you singing the Argosy’s praises!!!

The hotel and restaurant staff are all super friendly and very accommodating The hotel room was nice, with some extras, but nothing spectacular In the traditional sense, there is no room service- just “brown bag” lunch between noon and 5 pm

If you want an actual meal, you have to go down to the concourse and wait for a table However, the food is delicious and the restaurant staff is excellent!

This is a really nice hotel, only a couple of small issues I wish there was a microwave in the room, and when I arrived my shower drain was super clogged and the first shower I took I was basically standing in standing water at the bottom of the tub That said I did request this maintenance from the front desk and it was taken care of quickly

The shower head wasn’t that nice either, it was spraying water in several different directions, but I got the job done Several other people I was traveling with mentioned that they did not have soap in their room when they arrived, it wasn’t just one person, so that also doesn’t look good I also wish the breakfast menu down the restaurant had a few more options But The Omelette was really good so no worries I suppose Otherwise the look and feel the place is super nice and I’d be happy to stay here again I also forgot my iPhone charger and one of the front desk attendants was actually really helpful in letting me borrow one

Rachel Brown

Hotel stay was great Lexi with sales was GREAT to work with We were with a baseball team and they put all those that scheduled timely on same floor which worked well

Noise was minimal from other guests Rooms are a bit small for families larger than 4, BUT expected when they are attached to conference center and mostly cater to businesses vs an actual family stay Hotel was updated, clean, fresh Super accessible to all things and the highway Our family had dual tournaments…Lenexa and Lee’s Summit it was PERFECT location for both

NOT A REAL HYATT! Nice staff but the hotel needs some serious updating 1st room they sent us to was not even cleaned yet, no towels or soap & disgusting green tinge on bathroom door handle Not worth your money!! & yeah I totally agree with any other negative reviews about this place! I understand it’s hard to find workers these days but then just say your full

Felt sorry for the one maid that was there at 10pm still cleaning rooms!! My one star is generous

Kathryn Edward

I would give it 0 stars if I could No one was at the front desk for a solid 20 minutes, and when someone finally came they proceeded to ignore me and take the phone call that had been ringing for 5-10 minutes Fine, I checked into my room and it was great looking, but there were crumbs all over the couch, some random guy’s shoes still there, and there were *blood* stains on the bed… I was disgusted so I moved to the couch bed

That was even worse It smelled of urine I slept the night in the bed and was starving the next morning I went down for breakfast and it was DISGUSTING There was a white foam over the eggs and the tortillas were molding together The “oatmeal” was oats in cold water in a cooking pot I’ve been with hyatt for a long time and never have I ever seen something this appalling Do not stay here

Brian Diamond

HORRIBLE Experience!! We booked two rooms The first one was right next to the pool The entire night we could smell weed so noone was bothering to check anything outside

The other room when we checked in was HORRIBLY Hot The thermostat was broken and was reading 78 degrees We were able to get the AC unit to turn on but it was either a meat locker at 62 degrees or a sauna at 78 degrees I will give the staff some credit as they did try to fix it by giving us a different room, but when we walked into that one it had a horrible smell of sewer gas so we decided to just give the hot/cold room a try for the night When we woke up the next morning, there was NO hot water Overall i would say this was a VERY BAD experience and we have stayed at this location several times in the past I highly doubt we will come back after this experience

Victoria McDonald

From the beginning we questioned staying But the kids were excited by the slide and pool and we were all exhausted We requested a suite as we had a large group and the first thing the lady said was “are you sure you really want a suit?” Then explained the cost of it

She said it was just to be sure we really wanted it She was a bit rude but we took it we maybe just to tired for attitude being in the car all dayIf you have allergies especially with dust and mold I do not recommend staying here There is so much dust they moved us from the first room cause of bugs The second room blood stains on the mattress pad Stains on blankets got new blankets and an apology There is so much dust covering everything you wonder if they ever really clean The pool is disgusting smells so bad and the second day it wasn’t even operational due to the smell They told us at 10 they would let us know when they cleaned it They never did my oldest went down around 4 and ran into management who claimed he had no idea and we could go across the street So they sent us over across the street to the neighboring hotel for the kids to swimThe mattress on the couch was barely even usable honestly needed to be thrown away it was torn all down the side Breakfast was terrible sour waffles , dried eggs, sausage that was so Chewy it was disgusting The downstairs in the hall has this wet mold smell Then you can see mold in the peeling wallsNow the good thing the staff tried to help us we had a group in a suit They were very nice in handle the kids She expressed she wished there was more she could do Unfortunately we will not be going back to this hotel will not be recommending it cause even though the front staff in the evening was kind it does not effect the state of the hotel Unfortunately money wasted staying there

Diane Klempnauer

The rooms and service were good, however, when I arrived in the room I noticed the toilet had poop marks in the toilet This means either the toilet wasn’t cleaned between patrons or the housekeeping used it Also, there was less than a roll of toilet paper no other rolls left in the bathroom and only one soap

A couple other small things, it would be a good idea if the room had updated guides for TV channels and instructions on how to use the shower The milk for breakfast was sour, both 2% & whole, I brought this to the attention of the kitchen helper and she corrected it

Marilyn Merle

Sheets felt wet and looked old The sink dripped and this splashed on the floor The AC was cold upon cold! Took a long time for the room to warm to a comfortable cool

Noticed trash in the ice bucket Coffee selections in room were decaf Not my favorite and I am a regular customer of these hotels so recognized the disparity from other experiences

My husband, children, and I stayed here while enjoying a weekend getaway We checked in late Thursday night While going through our bedtime routine with our kids I noticed that the shower was not working well at all

When the tab was pulled the water continue to come out of the bottom tap and so there was almost no water pressure at the shower head I noticed that the tile around the water spicket was cracked as were our mirror sliding doors The room itself was clean The bedding had some piling, but nothing smelled bad and there was no dust There was not a blanket for the pull-out couch bed and we only were given three towels, but that was quickly rectified with a trip downstairs We slept well The blackout curtains work great and there was very minimal noise for being so close to a train track The next morning I mentioned the issue with the shower and they told me they put it in for maintenance and to just leave the “Do not Disturb” off the door and it would be repaired The breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about, the usual waffles, eggs, a breakfast meat-type fair The people running it however were quite lovely The Friday we came back from our activities and the shower still had not been repaired In addition, I noticed one of the light bulbs was out in the bathroom causing a strobe-like effect when it was turned on We went down to the pool and enjoyed swimming for a while The hot tub is not available for use right now The pool is great for kids We got the kids cleaned off and ready for bed and went about our nighttime routine That Saturday I made sure to go back to the front desk and tell them again that the shower was still not working and also the light was out and could they please ask the cleaners to go through the room My children had gotten some crackers on the floor around the bed and I was not able to clean them up completely When we got back on Saturday they had repaired the shower partially It was definitely much more functional The light bulb was still out And while they had made our bed the crackers or still on the ground Sunday morning we checked out The people working were nice and professional The location was ideal for getting around different places in Kansas City The hotel definitely needs to be updated when it comes to repairing some of the things that are broken rather than just patching them

Janet

From check-in to check-out we had a great stay Our room wasn’t fancy, but it was clean and comfortable We both slept well

Breakfast was fresh and proper temperature The lady stocking the breakfast area was very helpful when I had allergen questions about the prepared food Future trips to KC, this will be my first choice for hotels

Jody McLaughlin

The people were very nice The location was fantastic to get to chemo The room itself was a little past its prime

There were black spots on the ceiling and I could not close the drapes because of the heater location The room itself was extremely cleanI did not hear any trains running overnight The breakfast was good and the attendent was very helpful

Overall great experience The Front Desk was great and even helped locate us a few places to go I got a corner room and it was clean & nice

I actually used my point for the stay which was 30,000 I had drinks at the bar and it was a nice environment although the server was very busy So patience is encouraged The next morning, I enjoyed coffee and working from a high top table in the lounge

Debbie Johnson-Hicks

My room was 1211- directly across I guess the laundry or cleaning room That door stayed open the entire time I was there It continuously sounded as if someone was coming in my room, because of the air I guess

However whenever someone was in there you can hear them clearly into the room as if they are at your door It was not as if they were loud on purpose, its was the lack of sound proof provided in the room The carpet was coming apart as you walk into the room The bottom of shower had a scum stain After pulling back the sheets on one side there was a cluster of snags I staff was super nice and servicing Restaurant was nice even while training new staff members The only thing room service charged me 795 for a glass of tea which came out of a bottle Restaurant gave me the bottom and glass of ice, tacky and super up charged on the drink Front desk was generous to provide a cookie everyday with a smile Sauna and gym was clean and nice Parking was horrible, trashy not sure if someone comes out there an clean up Cant say I was 60% satisfied

Kelly Ann

Great service at check in Little black short hairs on bed & long brown hair on toilet seat & bathroom floor upon check in & paint cracking around drain in bathtub made me wish I had shower flip flops Other than that room appeared clean and in decent shape

Very ugly curtains Comfortable bed Popcorn ceilings Elevators doors close very quickly and have poor motion sensor – watched a older gentleman get squished in the doors, thankfully he wasn’t hurt

First our room was cool, despite the portable air conditioner sitting in the bedroom and could have been a tripping hazard We noticed our room was 1of 2 with this kind of unit being vented out the window Second when we got ready to use the hot tub, it didn’t work

When I asked the desk, I was told it was out of order and they probably should get a sign up Then after I showered I looked all over the room for a hair dryer, nothing So I tried to call front desk, and the phone didn’t work So I got dressed and went to front desk I was told they were in the process of replacing the hair dryers I asked if they had one I could take up to the room and was told no The motel wasn’t full, but no offer to get one from another room Finally when we went down to eat, I thought a bagel might be good When I started cutting it, the guy next to me who had just tried fixing a bagel told me good luck that I might need a chainsaw Threw it away, went for eggs, they were cold Ugh! Definitely not a good stay

K R

Hotel was very dirty- bathroom had hair all over it The room did It appear to have been cleaned in some time

Rooms are out dated and not maintained Bed was overly firm We were traveling with other families and they had ants in their room Hotel staff sprayed but did not offer another room or to compensate them Breakfast was not good Entire hotel needs a good scrub down and remodel Only plus is it’s proximity to things Would not recommend

Erica Sharp

They were short staffed on our weekend stay We paid for the highest room for a couples getaway and our floors were not well cleaned, the remote for the TV didn’t work, the bed and pillows felt so hard and lumpy and the front desk couldn’t be inconvenienced for anything I can appreciate the low staff causing stress, but rudeness when we call and make a request is not acceptable

Won’t be going back and not worth what we paid It’s a bummer because the jacuzzi suite has great potential

Overall disappointing Front desk staff was not overly friendly and did not inform me that there would be no daily housekeeping The room I was put in had a very overwhelming musty smell that did not dissipate after running the AC

The room and overall facility are very dated The outlets next to the beds were so loose it had a hard time holding my charger The mattresses were sunken in and obviously very old There was hair in the shower, and mold spores on the bathroom ceiling There was a thermostat on the wall in the bedroom however it was non-functional… you had to adjust the temperature at the window unit itself Not a big deal but it just shows how lazy they are they couldn’t remove and patch the hole on the wall where the thermostat was So they just disconnected it and left it there The nicest person in the entire hotel over the course of my stay was the Lady who made the breakfast Every morning she went out of her way to say good morning to every single person who came in Give this woman a raise! The front desk staff need to take a customer service lesson from her! The breakfast met expectations with a good variety for this type of hotel Overall very disappointing in my stay I will not be back

Deb Loiselle

Definitely a nice hotel and what I expect when visiting a Hilton property People are friendly, beds & pillows are comfortable, it’s clean, and offers a nice breakfast My only suggestion for improvement is to do better maintenance on A

C unit The one in our room was noisy and we couldn’t use it if we wanted a decent night’s sleep Thankfully we could open the window for air circulation It’s too bad there’s not a gas/convenience store nearby

fatima lynn

Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful breakfast was fulfilling and plenty for my family the beds were completely clean and comfortable The tvs in the rooms were clear and lots of great channels kid friendly the lobby and hallways smelled clean of some sent that my husband asked for the name so we can have it in our home Overall stay was great we will be back for another visit

We also enjoyed the close distance to mall and stadium

I wish I could give this place more stars, but the breakfast was underwhelming They’re still serving COVID-style grab n-go sandwiches and cereal foods, when a DC restaurant I just stayed at is a fully open buffet style The milk was frozen, and options limited

The rooms were very very nice and I would still recommend staying here

Hotel is nice enough, but getting here right now is a pain The exist off the higheay is closed, so you have to go down one more and come back up through a street with like 6 roundaboutsLobby is nice, reception was okay

I hate having to leave this review My husband and I stayed here recently on our honeymoon and were so disappointed I read google reviews before we booked and a number of them mentioned it being dirty but we decided to go ahead and give the hotel the benefit of the doubt

The lobby was pretty dirty; we understand it was snowing outside but it still could’ve been better maintained The carpet in the hallways leading to our room were pretty dirty as well And when we arrived in the bedroom the floor was also in need of vacuuming, lots of hairs The tub had what looked like a few red crayon streaks; the soap bottles were not filled all the way; there was a half used roll of toilet paper in the bathroom in addition to a full one By the fake tree there was a rose petal on the floor, definitely not ours There was a chunk of something in the bottom of the mini fridge Also pretty noisy being New Year’s Eve We’ve stayed in cheap hotels that were much more sound proof and a lot cleaner Overall very disappointed for the price we paid and for all it’s hyped up to be The lady at the check out desk was not very friendly and didn’t ask how our stay was This is a beautiful unique building and has a ton of potential but definitely needs better management

Nickole Bribiesca

Everyone was very sweet and awesome Which made the stay pleasurable Learn the pricing before you order, I’m not sure we ever see the breakfast pricing and was surprised at the bill but you absolutely pay for convenience

Things were clean and worth saying again- staff is amazingPerfect placement being close to anything you can think of while also being slightly tucked away The traffic and hustle of the Legends down the street has no effect of the peaceful and romantic ambienceI would recommend to anyone looking for a nice getaway or staycation that can afford the luxury the Chateau Avalon provides It’s not a budget hotel but again, provides the luxury you would pay for

Akimi Weller

Hotel when walking in is not very inviting We got checked in and went straight to our room The front desk gave us two vouchers for drinks since they couldn’t get us in for couples massage

The room was not how the pictures show it We got the Lincoln room which felt smaller than I was thinking it would be There’s no closet space to hang clothes or coats The hot tub does get very hot and filled up Their bar is what we loved the most The service in the bar was very pleasant and their drinks very tasty Bed in our room very comfortable

The rooms were spacious and cozy and definitely worth the price point Stayed one night for a couples’ weekend and the area was clean and quiet Love the setup with glass elevators and a huge central “courtyard” area

Bartender was very kind and conversational and breakfast was good (albeit a bit hectic, but hey, it’s free!)Used the remote key option in the Hilton app and it was AWESOME! So neat to be able to open the door with my phone and do a remote check-in to skip the line

Tanya Burns

Very friendly, clean hotel Upon arrival we were greeted by a gentleman at the front desk He went out of his way, to show us a room, and to be patient as we decided whether to stay

Glad we did! This hotel was clean, and had the most courteous, and friendly staff I have seen in a long time Breakfast was a surprise as it was a hot breakfast with numerous choices Once again, the staff was very courteous and ready to help They seemed sincere and it was refreshing Will stay there again

Megan Switzer

The included breakfast is great Made to order omelets, additional hot food items, as well as fruit, waffles, bagels, and oatmeal The evening reception is a great add, and the bar staff is awesome

The new food menu is full of options that are hard to choose from, and the food actually comes out tasting like a solid restuarant grade meal Very good Rooms are always clean and feel updated even though the hotel is older Location is close to highway and there are lots of other restaurants nearby

They have very friendly front desk staff!! Every time I interacted with they, they were so nice and it made the experience that much better They were nicest front desk people i have ever dealt with at a hotelBreakfast buffet is back and was goodRooms clean and Overall niceThere is a mini fridge in the roomShower had the best water pressure as wellNice pool but loud bc bas echoGym looked nice and had free weights as wellThey sell beer there but is not really a bar in my opinion

So if like to hang out at hotel bars and plan to stay here bc they list a bar, just know it is not what you would expect at all

Unfortunately I had to leave 1 star

but it doesn’t deserve that This hotel is VERY outdated There is an odor upon entering and throughout the halls There are stains on the chair in the room, and the room felt very moist/wet The toilet wasn’t clean, and there is rust in the shower/bathtub This is the worst Hampton Inn that I have ever visitedand will definitely be the last The staff however, was nice

Inside pool during the heat wave

priceless Dealing with the Manager (Brett Anderson) not worth it Water leaks abound in this hotel and Management “Will enter your room without notice” per Brett, no matter what Hotel clerks were helpful, no issuesvery attentivetoo bad their Manager can’t represent them a little better He was very rude both times we had encounters with him and extremely unhelpful Hampton Inn would be better served with a new Manager in placeASAP His bad days WILL effect your peaceful stay Travelers beware😞😠😡

Best staff ever!! Rooms were comfortable, they even had a comfy roll out that we used with everything in the cabinet Huge bathroom, set up for three people, enough towels and tea tree shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the shower The shower head had different settings

The only con for our room was it needed and extra mirror

We stayed 2 nights and recieved no maid service while we were there You have to stay 3 nights or longer forFresh towels, trash removal or clean sheets! I asked for clean towels at the desk, he seemed put out to even get up

There were hockey teams that could not keep quiet Kids running everywhere I wish the hotel could put adults that want quiet in one area We won’t be back

Conveniently located next to 435 and Shawnee-Mission, after a week of vacationing with the kids my wife and I were excited to have a weekend getaway in Shawnee Unfortunately this hotel was really lacking compared to other Marriotts I’ve visitedWe got a couple’s suite just down the hall from the front desk

The bar was not operational, which was not made known when booking the stay The breakfast was subpar as well, not offering what was advertised online Their reasoning was covid which seemed to be an easy scapegoat After ordering our drinks, we watched as a couple other customers walked up, ordered, got their beverages, and then left Finally realized they were just not making our order so I had to go ask where our drinks were and they said they forgot themOnly one jet in the room’s jacuzzi was operationalThe front desk does sell individual beer and one of the beers they sell is locally made in KCMO I wish I would have taken a picture because it was delicious and I would totally give them a shoutoutI’ve had some amazing experiences at Marriott hotels, this just wasn’t one of them
